Items not showing in calendar view

  Asked By: Tanya    Date: Aug 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 34762

I have a list which uses the calendar view. Items entered are showing
in 'All Items' list view, but not on one of the calendar views which
does not have any filters. However it is showing in others that do
have filters.

How many items  are listed on the day that the list  item is missing?

Answer #2    Answered By: Gopal Jamakhandi     Answered On: Aug 12

Only three or so. It’s the strangest thing… there are three views  that have filters  based on what’s in a specific field (in this case, it’s a choice field [dropdownlist]) for the person’s manager. Each view   has a filter based on the specific manager. The records show in those view with no problem. However, in two other views there are no filters, yet a handful of these records don’t show up.

Could it somehow be related to pagination?

Answer #4    Answered By: Kyla Eckert     Answered On: Aug 12

These are calendar  views… so pagination doesn’t apply (right?).

It isn’t just one day, it is happening on several days with inconsistent numbers of how many entries are and are not showing  (on one day it is omitting 2, another 5 etc)

And to add to the weirdness, I just checked and all of the documents
were created by the same person..... It appears they have an admin
entering all of the entries. I thought maybe it had to do with the
version of something on one machine as opposed to another that was
working but that is not the case either.

Any ideas? I know the end users are starting to get impatient (and I
don't have any answer......)

I like the answer... "no". Love the sound of the word (Gruffy Bear of
Jungle Jam and Friends). : )

Just kidding, I'll have a look at it and let you know what I find.

I feel so left out. I DON'T work with Hollie. Maybe my party invitation
got lost in the mail. :-)

Feelings of exclusion aside, I'll try my stab at this little conundrum.

When you defined the calendar  view, which options and fields did you
select for the Columns section of the view  definition? Did you use a
single date field or the interval option? And for the selected date
field(s), is/are the field(s) required? And is/are the field(s) for the
missing items  populated?

I tried recreating the issue by creating a calendar view of a calendar
list, basing the view on the end date, and then adding an item with a
beginning date but no end date. Sure enough, the item did not show up.

So try checking that portion of the view definition. Perhaps the view
has the wrong columns setting.

And here's another test to try. If you have date fields of beginning
date and end date, and you define the calendar view to show items in the
range of end date to beginning date (instead of from beginning date to
end date), you can also make some items not show up. In fact, the only
items that DO show up in this case are the ones where end date and
beginning date are BOTH populated and have the same value. If end date
is left blank, the item is excluded from the view. And if the end date
is later than the beginning date, the item is excluded from the view.

Here is a follow up to this issue, and thanks to all who helped.

I took the weenie way out and created a new list. Reasoning behind
doing this is that lets face it, SharePoint has gremlins. Instead of
chasing down this one, I decided to let SharePoint take the win and just
start over. No one from our end had created or maintained this list  (an
end user did) and therefore it was looking to be pretty difficult to
pinpoint what went wrong where.

While creating the new events list and setting up the columns, I noticed
that the original problematic list was actually a custom list. The user
had created a custom list and used a bunch of calendar  views to where it
looked like an events list. Something I didn't pick up on the first
time around.

I used the datasheet view  to copy and paste info over and the new (real)
events list works great. Users are happy and delighted to have their
stuff show properly.
